Over the past year, BMW has presented the five-door and three-door hatchback body styles as well as the M Performance-prepped and badged M135i version of the second generation 1-Series, also known under the internal codename F20.
To explain, there's a small minivan-like model that may or may not be called the 1-Series Grand Turimso but which is not mechanically related to the hatchback variants as it will likely share its FWD underpinnings with the next generation of the Mini. This model is rumored to debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.
Then we have the replacements for the current 1-Series Coupe and Convertible, which while based on the platform of the hatchback, are said to be marketed as the 2-Series models.
Our spy shooters have not yet been able to spot a prototype of BMW's next compact two-door models, but the Brazilian crew from Auto Projeções crafted a realistic looking photoshop of the cloth top 1- or 2-Series with elongated front doors and a more steeply sloped front windshield.
The 1- or 2-Series Convertible should arrive about a year after the Coupe variant in 2013.
